So, recently I got myself a 55inch version of VU Masterpiece Glo. I knew from the beginning that the panel was manufactured by Hisense but I had a hard time believing VU had a custom SKU with a panel sourced from Hisense. After a lot of research, I found that VU MPG is nearly identical to Hisense U8GQ (not to be confused with U8G, which is far superior to this TV). Everything matches except for a few tweaks to the design of the frame and stand. Even the performance is mostly similar. Also, the number of Dimming zones has been reduced. Remote is 100% exactly the same. SOC used is different. Hisense U8GQ uses NovaTek NT72671D and VU uses MT5895 which is slightly more powerful than MT5893 found in Sony X950H. I am pretty confident it's a slightly inferior version of Hisense U8GQ. Soon I'll be renting an X-Rite i1 Display for calibration. I just hope the luminance figures are the same as the U8GQ.

Congrats, Will be nice to see your display readings, do post here and share your findings.
Thank you, will share once I have the colorimeter. Hopefully, it can give some useful insights and help out others with general calibration
